I am going to put to bed the conversation on morality. My final thoughts…
Morality, as viewed by societies, changes across time and geographic location. There is a collective world view on murder, theft, kidnapping, etc., but!
there also exists a personal morality. Each person must decide for themselves whether they choose to be truthful or choose to be a liar. Each person must decide for themselves how they will handle the gray areas of morality.
I enjoy these types of conversations and appreciate the numerous comments that are helping me work through the discussion. Morality is a complex concept requiring each of us to spend serious time in introspection when confronted with moral dilemmas. I encourage everyone to evaluate your views on morals and take time to maintenance your moral compass!
